Our trip started in Hamburg, Germany on June 21, 2019, stopped in Southampton for the day on June 24 and onwards to New York arriving June 30. The trip had 2 very different vibes: The Hamburg to Southampton segment had many more families with "free range kids", noise, heavy patronage of the buffet, garbage on the floors, noise at night, kids running and knocking on doors, kids running free ...

We had a wonderful time on our recent voyage on the Queen Mary 2. For a more detailed daily description please see the Cunard Forum for our daily reports titled “Join Pete and Judy on their FIRST crossing on the Queen Mary 2”. We are experienced travelers and cruisers in our 60’s with most of our cruise time on Holland America and Princess, with a few cruises on Celebrity, NCL, RCI and ...

Chose this cruise because they cancelled the earlier Victoria sailing and we wanted to cruise back to the states just having completed a Costa cruise. We were celebrating our 60th Anniversary/and 80th birthdays. Because there was a lapse in time between Costa and joining QM2 we drove to Italy and "killed time" there before joining the Hamburg departure. QM2 had just completed being remastered ...

QM2 finished nice refurbishment, but boarding at new Steinwerder terminal awful.

The QM2 has just finished a 25 day refurbishing in Hamburg dry dock . The QM2 now has 30 suites added on the top deck. There are also 15 more cabins (I believe geared for solo cruisers. 6 on deck two where the passenger photo gallery used to be. And 9 where the back half of the casino had been. I was surprised to see that the port terminal facility had been moved from Haven City (near ...

Reborn Queen sparkles – but has some teething pains

Conventional cruising wisdom recommends avoiding any sailing right after a major refit for good reasons: work is still ongoing and the crew members have been off their service routines for a few weeks. These issues were evident on the first post-refit transatlantic sailing on QM2 Hamburg – Southampton – New York. But these “teething pains” will be worked out and overall Cunard has made huge ...

Pretty Re-Mastered Ocean Liner with Issues

We were on the post-remastering cruise for the QM2, boarding in Hamburg immediately after the dry dock. We love the QM2 and love the experience of transatlantic crossings. This was our 20th cruise and our 6th time on Cunard. Re-Mastered Ocean Liner: The re-mastering was largely a success. The cabins have a more modern and subdued color scheme. New carpets throughout the ship, most with ...

Motley Mix Of The Ecstatic And The Unexpected: This was Queen Mary 2’s and Cunard’s big cruise of 2015, it’s 175th anniversary cruise. We embarked at Hamburg and sailed to New York. But the 175th anniversary cruise was technically supposed to start at the first port of call after Southampton, Liverpool, and continue first to Halifax, Nova Scotia and then to Boston before finally ending up in ...

If it was not for the poor experience of embarking and disembarking for this first time surface Atlantic crossing was absolutely great. I realize that it is not all that easy to have many hundred people embark and disembark but it rerally soured my experience. I travelled in Princess Grill class cabin No. 10068 and received the instruction to arrive at the terminal at 12 noon, which I did only ...

Wedding on Queen Mary 2; go for it!

Before and after the booking I was looking for some personal information on weddings on QM2, but it was hardly possible to find a review – therefore I add one to help future brides. Beside fulfilling the TA dream we also got married during our crossing! We had booked the wedding package with Cunard and after all documents from our side and the wedding booking details for the wedding itself were ...

We really lived the perfect dream of our life! We had big hopes (not even expectations) on our dream - and also fears. Hopes as we fulfilled a dream of our life and you want to have it perfect then and fears as we thought that a) the average age is very high and b) that we might be bored. Actually there we even younger couples than us (48+50) and also families with kids and teenagers. So this ...
